Title: Teichmüller space, harmonic maps and measured foliations
Speaker: Subhojoy Gupta (IISc Mathematics)
Date: 20 November 2015
Time: 3:30 – 4:30 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

This talk shall be an introduction to some aspects of Teichmüller theory, which is concerned with the parameter space of marked Riemann surfaces. I shall describe Wolf’s parametrization of Teichmüller space using harmonic maps, and discuss how it extends to the Thurston compactification. If time permits, I will describe some recent joint work with Wolf.
